"Phantom Billstickers cafe reader V.6, 2015" by David Eggleton (ed)

A 74-page New Zealand publication containing poetry and prose with a music/performance bias. Authors include TV directors, recipients of Janet Frame awards, and people published by Penguin. It's unpriced (free in NZ?), available online. My favourite sentence was Alastair Galbraith's "The Geography master was acknowledged as Worst Teacher To Be Caned By, as he had been a well-known fast-bowler and was said to have promoted the doctrine of "chalking" the cane, which gave the perpetrator a nice white line to aim at again and again".
